Though best known of course as the home of port (and increasingly for its great reds) the Douro also produces some seriously good whites. The vines at Quinta de Porrais are planted high up so the climate is distinctly chilly and are on average 65 years old (many of them well over 100) resulting in great freshness, intensity and mineral complexity in the wine. The winemaker Francisco (Xito) Olazabal is a direct descendant of the doyenne of the Douro Dona Antonia Ferreira - a 19th century pioneer of the port trade who owned many of the Douro region's most important estates. Combining Rabigato, for its ripe fruit and zippy edge, with Códega do Larinho, for its wonderful aromatics, this white makes a lovely partner for sauced fish dishes.
